ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On May 07, 1977, UFO released what would be their biggest-ever seller in the U.S.- “Light’s Out.”  The lineup featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Andy Parker (drums), Michael Schenker (guitars), Pete Way (bass), and Paul Raymond (keyboards/rhythm guitar) late from Savoy Brown.  This album was a big seller and the tunes were progressive, well-crafted, and with unique hooks and structures. “Too Hot to Handle” and the title track are mind-altering tunes which is why we love this album and encourage everyone to seek it out as it remains one of our all-time favorites.  Having seen the band live on this tour we can tell you; it is well worth the investment.  Please, seek it out at your favorite site for the absolute best in rock music and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

  57. 2018 Tuesday: After North Korean thug dictator Kim Jong Un says the ‘nuclear button is always on my desk,’ President Trump says that ‘his button is much bigger.’  Meanwhile, Venezuela- an oil-rich nation- finds itself with NO gasoline.  Ah, the joys of Marxism…
  58. 2019 Wednesday: Loads of new House members are taking their oaths today, most of them Democrats as they won 40 seats on Election Day last November.  Losers such as Rashida Tlaib and fellow anti-Semite Ilhan Omar as well as the Baby Evita- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley- the four women who will form the (Marxist) Squad are taking their oaths and will become instant thorns in the side of drooling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Meanwhile, as the partial ‘government shutdown’ continues into its 13th day, the Dems plan to vote on a funding bill that won’t fund the southern border wall.  Way to go, Dems, you love them illegal aliens.  Elsewhere, as tensions continue to rise in the African nation of Mali, gunmen murder 37 citizens in the street.  Sounds like Islamists to us…
  59. 2020 Thursday: Since the Iranians are causing so much trouble in neighboring Iraq such as trying to storm the U.S. Embassy in Iraq, the U.S. whacks Iranian thug General Qassim Soleimani as he heads for a car at the Baghdad airport, having just landed to direct more terror attacks at U.S. targets.  Good, send this POS to hell.  Of course, Tehran goes apoplectic over this so-called ‘outrage.’  Meanwhile, newly released emails show that ‘President Donald J. Trump purposefully withheld military aid to the Ukraine over his demands for an accounting of the criminal activities the Biden Cartel Crime Family had been doing in that country.  Elsewhere, Democratic candidate seeking the 2020 presidential nomination for his party- Julian Castro, a small-time Texas mayor and former secretary of HUD- drops out of the running today.  Good.  He never had a chance.   
  60. 2021 Saturday: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 84,517,989 confirmed cases, +593,048, 1,834,586, confirmed deaths, +8,410, and 47,548,752 confirmed recoveries, +286,928.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 20,596,260 confirmed cases, up 217,572 from yesterday’s reporting, 353,309 confirmed deaths, UP 2,599, and 9,223,561 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,467.
  61. 2021 Saturday A: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,345,909 confirmed cases, 26,357 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 21,807 confirmed cases, 289 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 251,585 confirmed cases, 3,523 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Colorado: currently, they have 339,172 confirmed cases, 4,936 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 434,799 confirmed cases, 3,392 confirmed deaths, and 381,714 confirmed recoveries.
  62. 2021 Saturday B: The home of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell were both vandalized with the heads of pigs and painted hateful epithets.  One of the slogans painted on the home of the Senate majority leader was ‘where’s my money?’  Now that’s hilarious.  Good question, though- why is $762 billion going abroad and only $174 going to Americans?  This is bullshit and everyone knows it so folks, paint away, paint away and continue throwing those hog snouts on their front porches.
  63. 2021 Saturday C: In Texas, the state’s supreme court sides with the attorney-general of the state, Ken Paxton, in his battle to keep restaurants and other businesses open during the Chi-Com Virus Crisis.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is unhappy that the Department of Justice waved off the lawsuit brought by Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert to entice Vice President Mike Pence to overthrow the results of the fraudulent elections in six Democrat-controlled states.  We hope he will because if Democrats steal this election, they will steal every election.
  64. 2021 Saturday D: Chi-Coms in Beijing warn of ‘consequences’ over the New York Stock Exchange delisting some of their Chi-Com corporations and companies.  Screw them.  Meanwhile, a judge in the UK announces he will rule soon on the U.S. demand for the extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.  Most are hoping he will receive a pardon for his offenses in the U.S. Elsewhere, we learn that U.S. airlines have lost around $35 billion in lost revenues thanks once again to the Chi-Com virus.  We hope to see the case the globe launches against the communist Chinese at the World Court over the destruction they’ve caused by letting this virus loose on the world.  Finally, a federal appeals court backs President Donald J. Trump’s order denying entry to illegal aliens who have no proof of healthcare coverage.
  65. 2021 Saturday E: President Donald Trump vetoes a driftnet ban off the course of California.  He also expresses that thanks to him, he was able to denude the Affordable Care Act- aka Obamacare- of the mandate that Americans hated.  Of course, should “Pro-China Joe” Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris become our next president and vice president, they are going to slap that sucker back on the ACA and full-time employment will return to 28 hours per week or less.  Something to think about.  Meanwhile, incoming Republican Congresswoman Kat Cammack, 3rd congressional district of Florida, says she plans to put an Israeli flag on her office door which just so happens to be next to the office of lunatic, pro-jihadi nut Rashida Tlaib.  Now that’s something we all want to see!
  66. 2021 Saturday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3522 with a jackpot of $8 million on the line: 11, 19, 35, 40, 46, and Mega 18.  The highest winner- out of 97,482 winning tickets- was one person who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $34,825.  The winning ticket was sold at Speedway in Wildomar, California, 92595.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #808 with a jackpot of $384 million up for grabs: 03, 04, 11, 41, 67, and Powerball 05.  The highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $16,047 apiece.
  67. 2021 Saturday G: Friends, stick around to discover whatever Beijing and their stooges in the Democratic Party are up today- we all know they’re up to no good so find out with us.  We thank you…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Sadly, with the growth of conglomerate mega-record companies as well as computers, digital music, and MP-3 players, music underwent a transition that made it difficult for older artists to get their music to their fans and to the public.  Peter Wolf released his next solo effort, “Sleepless,” on September 10, 2002, and folks, with a load of gifted musicians joining him, this is an amazing album.  You will find Mick Jagger and Keith Richards here as well as Magic Dick and loads of others.  We love this album and know that you will, too, so please seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be so glad you did- no doubts about what we are saying, period.
